He Is My Brother (1974)
Nomination Year: 1997
SYNOPSIS: A pair of brothers is shipwrecked onto a South Seas island leper colony, and a power struggle emerges between the natives and the colonists. Less engrossing than it sounds.

The Tagline Says It All
Not only is the cover art just plain bad (no stills, only drawings), they misspell one character's name as "Luana" instead of "Nuala" as she is called in the film. But the tagline is the real hook, repeated on both sides in big letters: "Love and Courage Overcome Fear and Superstition in a South Sea Island Leper Colony." Doesn't that make you want to rush right out and watch it? Own your own copy today!
